Top photos of 2017

Some of my top photos of 2017. I didn’t take as many photos as I would’ve liked throughout the year, but here’s what I think are my top photos of the past year.

Happy New Year

How is it already time for the second half of the season to begin? Half a season gone means playoffs, provincial playdowns, and provincials are even closer. Esso Golden Ring and CORA Classic are right around the corner, which are two weekends full of amazing ringette. Games for coaching begin on January 6th while games for playing start on January 13th. I'm excited for games to begin again because games are one of my favourite parts of the season. I'm also very excited for more tournaments Read more [...]

Coaching and Playing Update

It’s about halfway through the first half of the season and it’s been flying by. For playing we’ve won one game so far and have had some pretty good games, but just can’t seem to break the other teams’ triangles or figure out the goalies’ weaknesses’. At some games we haven’t had a lot of skaters, so those games have been a little bit of a struggle. Typically, we’ll have a game once a week but sometimes have more than one game a week. When there’s been a game or two in a week Read more [...]

How August Ringette League 2017 went

Last night the August Ringette League ended. It was a really fun three weeks of games. When I got to the rink last night there was a total of 13 skaters for the two teams out there playing with no goalies, so they had to score on garbage cans - which is harder than you think. We ended up having nine skaters and a goalie for each team during my game, which I honestly can't remember the last time I've played a game with nine skaters. Part way through the second period we started laughing at just about Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 17: Edge

For this weeks photo challenge I chose Edge after looking at photos from a hike in Drumheller on Friday. I didn't take too many photos, but I took this one right before getting to the main part of the trail we went on overlooking where we were going to be hiking. Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 16: Landscape – Nighttime

For this weeks challenge I chose a photo from vacation when I set my camera up to take a 30 second exposure photo. Originally I was out taking photos to capture a star trail, but it didn't end up working because the clouds I couldn't see when I set up my camera. Even though the star trail didn't work out I still got some amazing photos. Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 15: Dance

For this weeks photo challenge I’ve chosen Dance. My cousin is a dancer, so while we were taking photos with glow sticks she did some dance moves.

August Ringette League 2017

Tomorrow night the 2017 August Ringette League begins. This is the third year the National Ringette school is putting on the August League. There are four teams that put together the league. Games are Tuesday and Thursday nights at Mount Pleasant arena. The first game of the night is at 7:15p.m. with the second game following at 8:45p.m. The August League is for U19 and Open ringette players. I'm excited to be back at the rinks because it means the actual season is closer to starting. It's Read more [...]

Photo Challenge 2017 Week 14: Fun

For this weeks photo challenge I chose Fun. My cousin and I have gone out and taken some photos on a couple of different nights here with glow sticks and sparklers, which have been a lot of fun. We’ve been trying different things that I’ve wanted to try and then we’ve come up with ideas on the spot. We’re still going to go out and try different things before we both leave the cottage.
